That Once In A Lifetime Moment When Whitney Houston & Mariah Carey Collaborated!




The planet may never have singers like these two, Whitney Houston and Mariah Carey. So back in 1998, both phenoms recorded "When You Believe" a song from the DreamWorks musical animated feature The Prince of Egypt. The yummy tune was featured on Houston's fourth studio album, My Love Is Your Love and Mariah's first Greatest Hits album entitled, #1's. "When You Believe" is as big a ballad as the two juggernaut divas.

Therefore ItsNotYouItsMe is paying the highest of salutations and tribute to this one of a kind music history moment. Below we've attached the behind the scenes footage of the two extraordinary songbirds recording the feature live in the studio. This was also back when artists recorded songs together. Now in this generation, it's all about "dm me the beat, I'll send u my part". Alas, that is the era when are currently living in. Hopefully, a future shift for the greater cause of music will happen.

A side trivia note. So Whitney said in an Oprah Winfrey interview with Mariah that Mariah was having some vocal problems during the recording of this. You could really see it on Mariah's face that she was feeling a bit overwhelmed but Whitney was just smiling at her through it all sending signals that everything would be alright.

This is truly a beautiful moment between the two of them. It clearly shows that they had nothing but pure love for one another. Today, in a world where con artists constantly exploit genuine creatives and innovators to later manipulate the public perception with their lies that they pioneered the piece of art, this is one wonderful tale that completely squashes all rumors of rivalry or anger to one another.

Put your musical paws high up in the air and take a knee or two. As we watch the closest thing to what the holy grail will ever look like! It's Mariah Carey and Whitney Houston's timeless "When You Believe"!
